Review summaryOur cruise itinerary changed due to hurricane, and we missed 3 ports. Added two ports to the south, which were Vigo, Spain, and Ponta Delgada, Azores. The two new ports were excellent, especially the Azores. Azores were incredibly beautiful and we learned a lot about them on a tour that was arranged by Princess. Princess did compensate each guest on the cruise for missing the ports ($200 per person). A great cruise!
Food and Dining
We loved going to Alfredo's for a sit down dinner at no extra charge. Wonderful salad, many choices of entrees, and dessert! Nice staff as well.
We purchased Enclave packages at the spa, so every day we used the Enclave (steam room, spa/jacuzzi, heated chairs) and then had use of the large shower rooms in the spa. We also found a "relaxation" room that we frequently used for reading, having a cup of tea or water, after our time in the Enclave.
